Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The scope is acquaint students with knowledges for successful implemenatations of optical communication systems and networks in various areas of converged NGN solutions. Transmission characteristics of optical fibers and different optical components and optical amplifiers are analyzed in line and networks connections. The study is focused on possibilities of signal multiplexing in optocommunication systems, above all on WDM multiplexing techniques utilized in creating of various optocommunication networks - transport, metropolitan, access. New trends in passive optical networks - TDM-PON, WDM-PON and HPON - are targeted.
Course contents:
The optical transmission of information in the closed space. Comparison of electric and optical signal transmissions in telecommunication access and transport networks.
Basic elements of optocommunication transmission systems. Optical medium (cables and fibers). Analysis of transmission parameters of optical fibers. Negative influences on optical transmission media from a viewpoint of the transmission capacity and the reach - the attenuation and the dispersion.
Cables lines with optical fibers, construction and transmission characteristics. Technology for building up optical cable routes in converged telecommunication networks. Measurement methods of transmission parameters for optical transmission media, localization of failures and their elimination on the optical route.
Regeneration of optical signals. Types of optical regenerators, analysis of their allocation and localization.
